Power Generators for Concerts and Their Usage


A wedding, a concert, a bachelor party, a party on a boat… there are so many plans where electricity is necessary and here electric generators play a fundamental role.

First of all, we are going to see what an energy generator is and then how to use it in concerts and different events.

What is an electric generator

An electric generator is the opposite of an electric motor. If the second transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy, the first converts mechanical energy into electrical energy and becomes a large battery or portable connection to an electrical energy source. Hence, they are used in all kinds of events as a main or secondary energy source in case there are power outages.

There are used fuels (mainly diesel or gasoline) to produce mechanical energy to later transform it into electricity.

Types of power generators

Whether you are a professional, a concert or any other event organizer company, or if you are an individual but want to throw a party in a big way, you definitely may need a generator.

It can be a small or big concert, you need a generator to keep the concert going without any issues in case of power outages or power failures. Besides, the concerts may be organized in a place without access to current electricity. In this case, most people use a power generator as the main source of electricity.

Any singer or a music group organizing concerts, considers using generators. Electric Earth Records is not an exception. It’s a vinyl-label that focuses on doom, heavy rock and related earth shattering riff galore.

Electric Generators’ Types Based on the Power

First of all, we must talk about the concept of kilovolt amps. For small events or concerts, a generator between 3 and 8 kVA will suffice. With that power you can comfortably keep dozens of light bulbs lit, a fridge, music equipment and everything you need to set up a party or concert for a few dozen people.

One last characteristic of this type of power generator is that they are small and manageable so that they can be easily moved.

For large events or concerts, having an emergency or secondary generator is almost essential.

As for the kVA power, we are talking about equipment of more than 12 and that can reach 170 (150 KiloWatts). Due to their size, these types of generators are not easily transportable and are usually in fixed positions in concert halls, hotels, large restaurants, football stadiums, etc.

Finally, it’s important to choose the right model and power for each event or concert. Falling short could spoil the party, and buying one that is too powerful will cost you money on unnecessary fuel.
